Why Home Automation?
Home automation is becoming increasingly popular due to the level of accessibility people now have to it. Where once the functionality was only available for the super wealthy, the relative low cost to automate and connect your home has made this technology available to more people. And with the ability to control many aspects of your home remotely (via a smart phone), there’s never been a better time to automate.
For Home Security
Home security is one of the oldest and most popular forms of automation. In the early days, it began with cameras that would record the external door of a property. Slowly but surely, technology has caught up to a point of video sharing to a smart phone device when your doorbell rings or someone breaks into your home. Keeping tabs on your house when you’re not there can offer peace of mind and ensure you’re always in control of who goes inside.
For Cutting Energy Costs
Controlling your energy usage when you’re not at home is now a possibility with the help of home automation. By turning off appliances when they are not in use by an application or timing system, you can control how much you spend on your energy bill. It also comes in handy when you think you may have left something on, by isolating different electricity points in your house, you can remotely turn off and on appliances at the tap of a finger.
For Making Your Life Easier
Overall, automation aims to make your life more comfortable and secure. The level of control you want over your property is up to you. We recommend looking into the different kinds of automation available, such as lighting control which can enable motion sensors or auto-off switches. Another way is through temperature control, turning heating or cooling on before you get home or timing the system to switch off after you’ve gone to bed. The possibilities for functionality in the home are expanding rapidly, so there’s never been a better time to get connected.View our full range of services Thinking of installing lighting, security or temperature automation into your home?
